Last Friday after Chloe had gotten up from her nap and before her little sister had decided it was time to get up, we spent some time together playing with a Lego set that she had gotten over Christmas. It was a construction set, but with little lego pieces. I had been waiting to upgrade (or downgrade?) to the regular size Lego pieces when I didn't have to worry about little babies eating them and Chloe had enough dexterity to really use them.
Well, after watching her play for a little while, I realized it was time to upgrade our Lego set. We set off to Target and bought a beginner box of Legos and a fun veterinarian set to put together. I was super excited about it and Chloe was too. Putting together the Lego set with instructions pretty much fell on me, but I was happy to do it. The next morning I was still getting some of the set together and we had fun after breakfast playing with Legos together. Both Chris and I really loved Legos as kids, so we're excited to start the tradition with our kids. We're still a long way off from optimal Lego building age, but why not start them young, right?
Messy bedhead and all! Like your style Elinor!
